So why I decided to blog….

imageAlright so here goes nothing…again.

 After having had been on Instagram for a short period of time and finding such enjoyment in sharing snapshots of our days along with interacting with friends and meeting new ones along the way, I decided to take a chance and dip my toes into the blogging world.

Intrigued by the thought of a creative outlet for myself and a little something to call my very own I mustered up the courage and created my own webpage to share pure joy from me. A special place to pour my thoughts out onto and share with others what I am capable of creating…besides children.

A blank canvas to paint my world onto…

During this “start-up” time I discovered all too quickly how difficult this really was for me.  Add on the simple fact that I had absolutely no clue to what I was doing, purejoyfromME was a pure mumble jumble hot mess.

I had all these visions of creating this simple blog with beautiful light airy pictures…sharing everything from motherhood comics, my daily Target finds to faux gourmet recipes. This was going to be simply all fun and so easy…W R O N G.

  “We get out of life what we put in”

 I found I was continuously having to remind myself that this little new project of mine was not going get the A+ grade I was wanting without devoting the time and effort that was needed. Along with bumps in the road and numerous mistakes I was making…frustration was settling in and consuming me to say the least.

I needed to accept the fact that I was and still am…Learning along my way.

   We have all experirnced times of needing to let go for a moment, breathing and taking a step back to reevaluate our situations…and that is just what I did.

After putting the blog on the back burner for awhile to allow myself time and patience to regroup my thoughts on this “fun” new venture of mine…I am now back and ready to give it my all.

I have entered a new point in life with all four of our littles in school where I can confidently say it is truly now time for ME…and you know what I am taking it!  I have never felt so comfortable in my own skin and so brave in life {well other then delivering all four nuggets}.

“Every next level of your life will demand a different you.”

I truly have cherished the days of my children little and by myside…I will forever be grateful that I got to spend everyday with them. I would be lying if I said I didn’t feel a bit lost at times without them here.  My daily job now has really done a 360 on me along with some bittersweet pulls on my heart, but the time has come…for all of us…to spread our wings and fly…just a little higher & further in our journey.

“Let us be lovely and let us be kind. Let us be silly and free.  It wont make us famous. It won’t make us rich. But damnit how Happy we will be.” -unknown

I am learning so much more about myself then I ever knew before…my strengths to my weakness, my wants to my needs. It is all such great blessings and I can not thank you all enough for supporting me as I travel down the introduction road to blogging.  Any tips or advice are graciously welcomed, please & thank you’s.

I can not promise you all that there will no longer be mistakes in my future blog posts, but I can promise you this…how much I am looking forward to sharing so much more with you all, I hope you stick around and enjoy! So much love to each and everyone of you.

    What a beautiful post! Many of the reasons I started are the same but, I’ve really learned that with one of my 3 boys still home there is only so much I can give! I find myself struggling with the balance as a stay at home mom and trying to run a business as a blogger! Thanks for the encouragement for sure!

      Thank you for your sweet words. As a beginner…a clueless one add that.. it can all seem often frustrating, oir time with our littles is so limited and precious. Always choose the kids…blogging can wait. Xx
